False Modesty

Discarded mannequins in front of an old storefront in Huatan Township, Taiwan.

I see these ladies wherever I go in Taiwan 台灣. These vintaged styled mannequins are a fixture of budget clothing retailers in cities across the nation. How did western features get to be so fashionable in Asia anyway? Whatever the case, I found this group of five abandoned to an unknown fate along a small street in the middle of Huātán 花壇, a small town in Changhua 彰化, and was compelled to capture this moment of accidental ennui.
